Lecavalier gets assist in debut, LA Kings beat Leafs 2-1

Jake Muzzin and Jeff Carter scored third-period goals and Vincent Lecavalier had an assist while making his Kings debut in Los Angeles' 2-1 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday night.

Lecavalier set up Muzzin for the game's first goal with 17:07 to play, capping a solid effort in the 17-year NHL veteran's first game since Nov. 12.

Los Angeles acquired Lecavalier and defenseman Luke Schenn from Philadelphia on Wednesday, and both veterans played solidly against the Maple Leafs a few hours after their cross-country flight.

Peter Holland scored a power-play goal midway through the third period, and James Reimer stopped 39 shots in his first start since Dec. 3 for the Maple Leafs. Toronto's three-game winning streak ended in the middle stop of its three-game California trip.

Jonathan Quick made 25 saves to remain unbeaten since Dec. 22 for Los Angeles.
